PCGS - (Santa ANA, California) - Coin designer Justin Kunz is autographing Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) labels being paired with 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame commemorative coins. Kunz designed the common obverse of the 2020 commemorative coins honoring the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. The 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame commemorative coins include a clad half dollar, silver dollar, and gold $5 coin.



These special PCGS labels are part of a larger, exclusive partnership PCGS has as the official coin authenticator and grader for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. PCGS is excited to have Kunz onboard signing labels for the Basketball Hall of Fame coins, as this renowned artist is one of the premier coin designers of our time.

"Kunz is one of the most pivotal and important designers currently serving the United States Mint," remarks PCGS President Brett Charville. "Getting to know him this past year has been a genuine pleasure. The opportunity to pair his autograph with the Basketball Hall of Fame coins - themselves unique collectibles with their curved planchets and outstanding designs - is truly a once-in-a-lifetime deal."

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame PCGS labels signed by Justin Kunz are being paired with the following coins:

2020 Proof & Uncirculated Basketball Hall of Fame Clad Half Dollar
2020 Proof & Uncirculated Basketball Hall of Fame Silver Dollar
2020 Proof & Uncirculated Basketball Hall of Fame Gold $5 Coin

Kunz, a professor at the University of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, has a varied artistic background that, in addition to numismatics, includes credits with Disney, LEGO, and Upper Deck. His journey in numismatic arts began in 2003 when he joined the United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) at the age of 29.

His artistic portfolio of United States Mint circulating and commemorative United States coins is diverse. Among his many credits are the 2009 Abraham Lincoln Commemorative Dollar obverse, 2015 High-Relief Gold Coin and Silver Medal obverses, 2017 American Liberty High-Relief 24-Karat Gold Coin and Silver Medal obverses, the obverse of every American Innovation $1 Coin to be issued from 2018 through 2032, and the reverse of the 2020 America the Beautiful Quarters Weir Farm National Historic Site issue also featuring the first-ever V75 Privy Mark. Furthermore, Kunz has designed many other circulating and non-circulating United States coins and medals and is among today's foremost numismatic artists.

Kunz says he is thrilled for the opportunity to sign labels for PCGS. "Signing PCGS labels for Basketball Hall of Fame coins represents a cool nexus point of sports, coins, and other collectibles." The husband and father of four also remarked that he had a little help in designing the obverse of the Basketball Hall of Fame coins. "My 15-year-old son, Caleb, loves basketball, and I actually consulted with him on the design a bit - he should definitely get some of the credit."

Collectors who submit their Basketball Hall of Fame coins to PCGS for encapsulation will also receive a limited-edition orange PCGS storage box.

They've found yet another gimmick to add to this sorry mess of an issue.
